NEXT STEPS DISCIPLESHIP COURSE

next-steps-logo

We offer a series of courses designed to help you grow in your walk with Christ and effectiveness for the family of God. We call these our NEXT STEPS Discipleship Courses. The content covered in these courses we believe are critical for people to grapple with, whether you are just checking out the Christian faith or having been walking with Jesus for years.

Each Phase tackles key issues, in a progressive and strategic manner that will equip you as a disciple of Jesus Christ. This is the “stuff” we feel is important for you to grapple with in order to mature to the point of helping others grow in their walk with Christ.

Our goal at LifeBridge is to equip you so that you can equip others. This is what it means to be a disciple.

We offer these four phases through either weeknight small groups or as a Sunday morning class elective. Contact the church to find what is currently available.
